Kelly Campbell will teach a six week class defining and practicing the basic elements of art starting January 16, 6-8:30pm and meeting weekly through February 20. Cost of the class is $150, and class size is limited to 10.

Kelly said, “This class is great for anyone who never had a formal art class or for anyone who just wants a refresher. Once a week for six weeks will give us ample time to talk about each of the elements in depth and to practice using the elements of art effectively.” She added, “I plan to have a weekly class for six weeks later on that does the same for the principles of design.”

A retired art teacher with 26 years experience, she believes that learning about the elements of art is important for beginning artists as a base for their art. She also believes that occasionally revisiting those basics can help practicing artists take their art in new directions.
